Sen. Holmquist Newbry Enters the Race for Congress

Washington State Senator Janéa Holmquist Newbry announced she will run to be the next 4th District Congresswoman.

The Republican from Moses Lake  made the announcement on Wednesday.

“I am humbled by the outpouring support from the 4th congressional district citizens and their faith in my abilities to be an effective representative for our region and help America return to economic prosperity,” she said.

Sen. Janéa Holmquist Newbry was first elected to the State House of Representatives in 2001, and at age 31 in 2006 became the youngest woman ever elected to the State Senate.  Holmquist Newbry currently serves as chairwoman of the Senate Commerce and Labor Committee, a position that has made her the face of Senate Republican efforts to improve Washington’s business climate such as reforming the workers’ compensation system.  Senate Holmquist Newbry’s success has earned her many accolades including a six-time NFIB Guardian of Small Business award recipient, with a 99% career voting record supporting small business.
Last week Congressman Doc Hastings announced he will not seek reelection in November.

She joins Franklin County Republican County Commisioner Brad Peck,  Ephrata businessman Gavin Seim  and former NFL star and Eastern Washington farmer Clint Didier in the race to succeed Hastings.
